9 Punjabis among 11 gangsters threat to public safety in Canada

Chandigarh, August 4

The Canada police have issued a warning about 11 men linked to extreme levels of gang violence. The police have warned the public to avoid being near them.

Out of the 11 men, nine are of Punjabi origin.

The British Columbia police said that they were linked to a slew of killings and shootings in the province.

“It is highly likely that a rival gangster will target them with violence,” said Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit Asst Cmdr Manny Mann, saying the men listed are a risk to their friends and family.

The police said the men identified in the poster are: Shakiel Basra (28), Amarpreet Samra (28), Jagdeep Cheema (30), Ravinder Sarma, (35), Barinder Dhaliwal (39), Andy St Pierre (40), Gurpreet Dhaliwal (35), Richard Joseph Whitlock (40), Samroop Gill (29), Sumdish Gill (28) and Sukhdeep Pansal (33).

Media reports from Canada said that such warnings to stay away from specific alleged criminals were earlier unheard of, but have increased in recent years.

A gangster, Meninder Dhaliwal, who was on last year’s 11-man list besides another six-member list of the Vancouver police was gunned down in Whistler late last month in a public place.

The shooting caused much panic and had tourists and visitors screaming and running from the violence.

Meninder’s brother, 35-year-old Gurpreet Dhaliwal, finds mention in this year’s list. The police said his brother, Harpreet, was the man shot dead in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour neighbourhood last year.

British Columbia officials said they have issued the warning to the public so that they don’t get caught in the crossfire of the ongoing war between the gangsters. The officials said they fear that the gangsters could indulge in a shootout and members of public could be harmed.
